The ketogenic diet is different in that it contains a lot of fat. This is 70-80% of the diet. It is believed that it helps to lose weight quickly, but in reality it only harms health.
A study presented at the ACC’s annual scientific session showed that a low-carb, high-fat diet nearly doubled the risk of developing heart disease compared to a standard diet.
The keto diet can be very high in saturated fat and low in soluble fiber. This is also bad for cholesterol and apolipoprotein A levels. To avoid dangerously high cholesterol with such a diet, you need to focus on other aspects of your lifestyle. Especially regular physical activity, portion control, adding more whole grains to the diet.
